According to breaking reports, Hamas has fired several rockets towards the Dimona nuclear reactor.
Destroying the reactor and unleashing nuclear contamination has been a long-standing goal of Hezbollah, Iran and Hamas. Several days ago the IDF Spokesman’s Twitter account was hacked and a fake message that rockets had hit the reactor and there was a nuclear leak were posted — to cheers from pro-Palestinians on Twitter.
According to official sources, the rockets actually fired today either missed or were shot down by Iron Dome. There are conflicting reports as to how many rockets were fired towards the reactor.
A few minutes ago, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired 3 rockets at Dimona. 2 fell in open areas; Iron Dome intercepted the other.

In 2012, Israel announced that in the even of war, the reactor would be shut down. It’s not known as of this writing if that has taken place.
